Callum Morton, Monument #32: Helter Shelter at The Gold Coast Arts Centre until 25 January 2019
As a part of their summer program, Home of the Arts (HOTA, or The Gold Coast Arts Centre) is exhibiting Buxton Contemporary Collection artist Callum Morton’s work Monument #23: Helter Shelter. Emerging uncannily from the ground, this monumental work could not be timelier. Monument #23: Helter Shelter is a piece of temporary architecture – a bus shelter rendered in the form of an emergent head of Donald Trump, hollowed-out and replete with inferno flames and bench seating. The work will be exhibited lakeside at HOTA until 25 January 2019.

Unfinished Business: The Art of Gordon Bennett is the first large-scale exhibition of Buxton Contemporary Collection artist Gordon Bennett’s work and features 200 artworks ranging from installation and sculptural assemblage to painting, drawing, video and ceramics.
Buxton Contemporary Collection artists Louise Weaver and Stephan Bram are included in A shining light, an exhibition of new works acquired by Geelong Gallery over the past year. The exhibition takes its title from a 1986 song The shining path by British group Shriekback, and the song's opening lines resonate in this uncertain times: ‘We had lived a blessed time but we knew nothing’.
